How can heartburn caused due to UTI be treated?

I have terrible heartburn from taking nitrofurantoin mono-mcr 100mg. What can I take to get rid of the heartburn. The doctor called and said I have a uti. I just took one pill and I m having a kidney removed Friday. The other question will I be able to have surgery with just taking 3 pills before surgery?

General & Family Physician 's  Response

The heartburn seem to be related to the use of antibiotics.

I suggest to use antacids such as Maalox three times a day.

I also suggest using protein pump inhibitors such as Omeprazole daily in the morning.

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
